Dear readers,

 

I have the honor to announce that, after a thorough evaluation, Brazilian Business Review – BBR has been accepted by the Content Selection & Advisory Board for indexing by Scopus. Soon BBR will be part of an elite group of the few Brazilian journals indexed by Scopus.

 

This is no small feat for such a relatively young journal. To give credit where credit's due, this is the result of a joint effort of several editors-in-chief, namely professors Antonio Lopo Martinez, Bruno Funchal, Emerson Mainardes and Bruno Felix, our highly qualified team of associated editors and reviewers, and all the authors who granted BBR the privilege of being the channel to publish their research.

 

We invite you to browse our new site at http://bbronline.com.br and to submit your research through http://bbronline.com.br/index.php/bbr/submit. Scopus’ acceptance letter follows at the end of this message.

 

Kind regards,

 

Fabio Motoki – Editor-in-Chief - http://orcid.org/0000-0001-7464-3330


Dear Editor-in-Chief,

 

The title mentioned above has been evaluated for inclusion in Scopus by the Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB). The review of this title is now complete and the CSAB has advised that the title will be accepted for inclusion in Scopus. For your information, the reviewer comments are copied below:

 

The journal has made improvements since the last application. The journal policy/scope has been refined. Some quality control measures have been implemented and the journal has some merits:

 

+ The journal has scholarly relevance as evidenced by citations in other journals currently covered by Scopus.

 

+ The articles are generally well written and understandable.

 

+ This title addresses a subject area not properly covered by an existing journal.

 

Hope the inclusion into Scopus further helps the journal improve its profile. However, the journal should not put the number of articles/issues published per year as a top priority. Journal content quality goes first. The journal should limit the number of special issues per year. The journal also needs to improve the methodological rigor.

 

Our Source Collection Management department will contact the publisher of this title within the next three months to initiate the indexing process for Scopus. A content coverage agreement needs to be in place before we can start adding the content to Scopus.com. If you are the publisher, please do not send us your content yet unless requested by our Source Collection Management department

 

Yours sincerely,

Scopus Title Evaluation Support
